Description

The affected asset is vulnerable to this vulnerability ONLY if Allow/Deny rules use IP addresses without a netmask on 64-bit big-endian platforms. Review your web server configuration for validation. A bug in the parsing of Allow/Deny rules using IP addresses without a netmask on big-endian 64-bit platforms causes the rules to fail to match.
